Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

3 Answers

When I moved my Lexmark C912 printer from one computer to another, I couldn't find the driver disk, so I downloaded the one I thought would work for Windows XP Home Edition. LEXMARK_AAI_WINXP_PCL_SYS_EN.EXE It works, but the menus are different, and I can't find a way to print on 12x18" paper.

    I downloaded the other driver and installed it, but I can't see any difference in the menu options.

    Paper size gives me letter, tabloid, and a dozen other options, but my old menu had a "custom" option where I could put 12x18". I have to admit that my webmaster set up the 12x18 for me, but he is long gone and I have no idea of how he did it. But the printer is designed for this size, so it can't be that strange.

    I downloaded the second driver, and have been going to printer properties to change the size, but 12x18" is not an option in the paper size setting, nor is "custom." This printer advertises as printing 12x18, and I have printed many sheets of 12x18 paper from my previous computer, but this print driver does not seem to support it.

    I downloaded

    LEXMARK_AAI_WINXP_PCL_SYS_EN.EXE first, then was advised to download

    LEXMARK_AAI_WINXP_PS_SYS_EN.EXE. Both are for XP. I am somewhat reluctant to uninstall them and try again unless I'm sure that it will make a difference. So far, even though I haven't figured out how to print 12x18, the color quality of my output seems to have improved. I would hate to sacrifice good color (which is important all the time) for larger format, which I only use occasionally.

    Worst case scenario, I'll keep my old computer attached to my network and use it only when I need some large-format prints.

It could be that the driver installed previously on the old computer was simply older where it had the custom paper option - although it's print quality may not have been as good as the newer driver where this custom option is missing.

This is common sometimes, they remove something, but add something else. It's a choice you have to make unfortunately. It is silly why they can't just leave the older good options present.

There may be a way to extract the old driver for use on your new computer. But then you will sacrifice quality over custom size. If you're happy to do this, let me know and I'll let you know how to extract the old driver for use on the new machine.

Also let me know what operating system the old computer was running.

Thanks

    old menu had a "custom" option where I could put 12x18". I have to
    admit that my webmaster set up the 12x18 for me, but he is long gone
    and I have no idea of how he did it. But the printer is designed for
    this size, so it can't be that strange.
    ==========================================================

    Paper size settings would be in printer properties, click Control Panel > Printer and Faxes > right click Lexmark C912 and select Properties. There you can set required paper size.
    Thanks.
